* HeyItsThatVoice: Many recognizable Hong Kong dubbers can be heard in the late '60s international dub used for Sandy Frank's syndicated version of ''Barugon''. Ted Thomas (Kubota from ''Film/GodzillaVsGigan'') even plays a newscaster.

* FanNickname: "Kenny/Kendra/Kennys" for all the child characters who's actual names the audience don't bother to remember. In two cases they literally were named "Kenny" though.

* DuelingDubs: About half the series was dubbed twice: First, by [[Creator/AmericanInternationalPictures AIP-TV]] (The English Language Dubbers Association and [[Anime/SpeedRacer Titan]] [[Series/{{Ultraman}} Productions]] did the actual dubbing) in the '60s and '70s, then later by Sandy Frank in the '80s, who used pre-existing Hong Kong produced dubs for at least ''Barugon'' and ''Gyaos''. The first set of dubs are the ones that show up on budget DVD releases (the actual pristine film elements are currently stored in the MGM vaults); the second appeared on MST3K.

* {{Expy}}: The Heisei's incarnation may possibly (perhaps unintentionally) be one of Godzilla1994 before it was screwed up. They both were created by ancient civilizations to fight a greater menace.

* ActorAllusion: The scene near the end of ''Gamera vs. Guiron'' with Kondo's glasses falling down his nose was a reference to a trademark pose the actor, Kon Omura, did in his comedy routines and ads. Since these all aired in ''Japan'' and he is very obscure outside of his home country, most people outside Japan just tend to see the scene as bizarre.
